Announcing the winners of the Eureka Socks and Around DB Sock Competition 2016
- Written by arounddb, 7 October 2016
Thank you to everyone who voted in the Eureka Socks and Around DB Sock Competition and well done to our five finalists who all entered fantastic designs!
The DB community has been voting for their favourite designs this week and the results are now in! Congratulations to our three winners - Felicia Tam from Discovery College, Harper Burke from Discovery Bay International School and Lia Dauphant from Discovery Mind Primary School.
Felicia, Harper and Lia's designs will now be made into real socks by DB-based garment company Eureka Socks. The socks will be available to buy in DB schools' uniform shops from the end of November, along with a new range of school socks.
Eureka Socks started up after concerned DB parents read about cancer-causing substances found in school uniforms and in branded clothing. Eureka Socks’ manufacturing partners all have the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certificate (“Confidence in textiles”). This is the best known, independent, global certification for textiles tested for harmful substances. Eureka Socks are made from bamboo, making them soft, breathable, antibacterial and very comfortable.
Look out for these wonderful socks in the school shops from the end of the month!
